So, Bells, did you get some rest and you are bright eyed and bushy tailed for the next round?
Hmmm... now I am wondering if you layered a sheet of steel wool between fabrics and sewed through it- would it sharpen or at least remove burrs from a sewing machine needle? Hmmmm....what do you think?
You can actually sew thru a fine grit sand paper and it will sharpen your needles for a liitle bit. They still won't last forever...LOL> But you do get a little longer usage.
I would personally be afraid to try that, I don't know if that could damage components in the bobbin area.
There's a needle sharpening pad.
Some of the sharpening pads that are sold are just sandpaper with a backing on it. You really don't get any grit or dust off of the 220 grit sandpaper when you sew through it.
Actually, I am more bushy eyed, and bright tailed, so I have to go to sleep for ANOTHER DAY OF WORK! YAY! (how long has it been since i had a full week of work???) Thank God! :D G'night, ladies! (it is 8:43 so I know it's early...)
I did not even know that sharpening pads was something sold. Live and lean
